OCR01281 - Dragon Warrior IV "The Grief of Aktemto"

Recommended Posts

The judges I think were a bit too hard, the mix is good, the orchestral part isn't all that sudden in coming or going. Sure there were flubs, but he's only human, and sometimes mistakes add character, I rather like the piece as is mistakes and all.

Music does not have to be mechanicly perfect in order to be good or acceptable.

I like this piece myself.

Even if I didn't like it for some reason, I would still admit it has character.

You know it's refreshing to see a remix of a classic RPG like Dragon Warrior IV. It sounds alot like the original in that it is dpressing, if anyone here played DWIV then you would see why it is in this macabre-esq tune.

That's my favorite RPG you're referencing. The original soundtrack had some really great moments that were couched in the belly of mediocrity. That being said, the whole thing is really a great stomping ground for remixers, due to the fact that the great moments in the soundtrack could be worked in while the other stuff can be ignored.

You've got great taste and I agree wholeheartedly with your statement. Considering that no one else has remixed any song from the Dragon Warrior IV soundtrack then yes the possiblities are indeed limitless. What I'd like to see is someone do a Heavy Metal rendition of the Battle against Esturk and Necrosaro. And of course a remix of Taloon/Torneko's theme would also be nice. :)

Love this! One of the first remixes I stumbled upon in OCR, and I wasn't even a DQ fan back then. It's just a really emotional track with excellent guitar playing. Glad Ryan still continues to provide cool DQ remixes over at DoD.

This is a great remix that brings a lot of intensity. The thoughtful acoustic guitar sound and phrasing gives me goosebumps. Ryan, this is a fine tribute to your grandmother! May her memory be eternal, my friend!

This song was very human to me.  From the playing, to the pace and arrangement, I find myself following along too closely on a day in which I have very little to be actually sad about.  One of my favorites!
